Winning For

Giving Gurgaonwallas the luxury of eating a de-shelled Travancore Crab Thoran in land-locked NCR

The State Of Affairs

We have to say that the coastal states have some of the best culinary tricks up their sleeves. Kerala’s curries, Andhra heat, Bengali sharpness and Goan tanginess are all on Coastal Reef’s menu, along with dishes from Tamil Nadu and the Konkan.

Think soups, curries, stir-frys, roasts…the works.

About The Fish In The Sea

Seafood is sourced from a vendor who supplies a fresh stock of fish, prawns, crabs and squid every second day to the restaurant; none of it comes from frozen or packaged sources.

Do keep in mind that while they do offer home delivery, Pomfret is only served in the restaurant because it tends to get less yum when it journeys to its home-delivery destination.

Sounds A Bit Fishy?

Well, there’s a solid selection of other meat curries too, like Nilgiri Mutton and Coorgi Chicken Curry. We tried some of the veggie dishes – both the Vegetable Chettinad and the Nellore Mushrooms had the taste from down south done impeccably.

Best mopped up with appams or a Malabar Parotta or two.


Nothing makes Aditi happier than good shampoo, good design, evolutionary theory and a spicy Bloody Mary. A Bombay girl to begin with, she’s made a home in New York, Glasgow, Singapore and London over the last ten years. After a one-day career in hand modelling {true story} and a much, much longer stint in brands & advertising, Aditi is all set to make the most of her Delhi/NCR chapter.
